Number of Servings: 24


    1 cup dry black beans, soaked overnight
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 banana (overripe is best)
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1/3 cup white sugar
    3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
    1 T vanilla
    2 tsp baking soda


Puree soaked beans in blender or food processor until smooth, add applesauce if mixture gets too thick to mix.
Mix in banana, eggs and sugar (and applesauce if you haven't already).
Add cocoa, soda and vanilla, mix well.

Pour into greased or papered muffin tins.
Bake at 350 for 20 min.

***WARNING: The batter will taste terrible and smell funny, but that's okay. I promise these magically transform into totally tasty cupcakes while they bake, just give them a chance!

    I'm making cupcakes for my son and neice's birthday party in two weeks. I'm going to make this recipe and see if I can pull one over on them. It's worked before with a Beet and Tofu cake. I'll come back and let you know how it turned out. - 5/8/10
